Damning texts between ex-Baylor coach Briles,
other officials revealed in new court records

Dallas Morning News, by Sarah Mervosh

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/4/2017 4:55:55 AM

Ex-Baylor football coach Art Briles and other former athletic officials tried to keep misconduct by football players hidden by creating a "see no-evil, report no-evil system," a new court filing alleged Thursday, a day after the disgraced coach abruptly dropped his libel suit against school officials. The filing, which came in response to a lawsuit by a former assistant athletic director, includes damning texts between Briles and other athletic officials as they dealt with multiple allegations against football players between 2011 and 2015. When a female student-athlete reported that a football player had brandished a gun at her, the court paperwork said,

They say that Baylor had "no policies or procedures for handling or reporting allegations of sexual assault." Baylor´s and every other school´s procedures should be to call the police and to take the victim to the closest ER. Universities should not be in charge of investigating criminal assault.

The True Purpose of the University
City Journal, by Heather MacDonald    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 5/23/2017 12:58:11     Post Reply
Yale University’s president recently provided a window into the modern university’s self-conception—an understanding embraced by both liberals and conservatives but flawed in essential ways. A primary purpose of a Yale education, President Peter Salovey told Yale’s freshman class last year, is to teach students to recognize “false narratives.” Such narratives, Salovey claimed, are ubiquitous in American culture: “My sense is that we are bombarded daily by false narratives of various kinds, and that they are doing a great deal of damage.” Advocates may “exaggerate or distort or neglect crucial facts,” Salovey said, “in ways that serve primarily to fuel your

From the last Morning Jolt of the week: When Does All That Evidence of Collusion Arrive? Thursday night, White House communications officials were eager to spotlight these comments from legislators, admitting or confirming, that they had, so far, seen no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Sam Stein, Huffington Post: “But just to be clear, there has been no actual evidence yet.” REP. MAXINE WATERS (D-CA): “No, it has not been.” Keep in mind, this is “Mad Maxine” Waters, who begins that interview by contending, “Lock her up, lock her up, all of that, I think that

President Trump on Tuesday defended revealing sensitive information to top Russian diplomats, saying in pair of early morning tweets that he has an "absolute right" to do so. Trump tweeted that he shared the information with the Russians for “[h]umanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism." He said he wanted to provide Russia with “facts pertaining...to terrorism and airline flight safety," something that he has “the absolute right to do” as commander in chief. Trump also vented his frustration that, once again, details from his conversations with foreign dignitaries leaked to the press. “I have

Ector is a sleepy blink-and-you’ll-miss-it kind of place surrounded by freshly plowed fields and cattle pastures, ten miles south of the Red River, in Fannin County. The town’s one gas station doubles as its only restaurant, and in the back of it there’s a smoke-filled gaming room where patrons can earn store credit while they catch up on the latest scuttlebutt. It’s a practical town, populated by ranchers, teachers, and prison guards, and is not known for its glitz.

The three people involved in effecting the termination of FBI director James Comey last week were President Donald Trump and the two highest officers in the Justice Department, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The Constitution vests in Trump the executive power, which he employs in fulfilling his constitutional obligation to take care that the laws are faithfully executed. He works through subordinates in exercising his power, and only he may fire them. Thus did Trump, in a brief letter to Comey, fire the director: "you are hereby terminated and removed from office." Trump told Comey

It Was Cultural Anxiety That Drove
White, Working-Class Voters to Trump
Atlantic, by Emma Green    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 5/9/2017 3:41:45     Post Reply
White Americans carried Donald Trump to the White House. He won college-educated white voters by a four-point margin over Hillary Clinton, according to exit polls. But his real victory was among members of the white working class: Twice as many of these voters cast their ballots for the president as for Clinton. In the wake of Trump’s surprise win, some journalists, scholars, and political strategists argued that economic anxiety drove these Americans to Trump. But new analysis of post-election survey data conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute and The Atlantic found something different: Evidence suggests financially troubled voters in

Team Obama’s Most Humiliating Display

As he said on occasion, George W. Bush was content to let history be his judge. Barack Obama’s associates do not, to put it mildly, exude that kind of quiet confidence. They don’t appear to believe posterity will prove their judgment sound, so they have instead elected to theatrically rend garments in the hope that their display will distract from posterity’s verdict. The early days of the Trump administration were typified by the near ubiquity of “former Obama administration officials” in the press. Whether they were providing blind quotes to reporters or waxing contemplative about their own sagely conduct of

WASHINGTON — San Antonio Rep. Joaquin Castro will not run for the Senate in 2018, a decision likely to clear the deck for another rising Texas Democrat, Rep. Beto O´Rourke, in the battle against Republican incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz. The decision, first reported by the San Antonio Express-News, ends months of speculation about the next move for Castro, whose twin brother, Julian, is the former U.S. housing secretary and former San Antonio mayor. Castro, in an email to supporters, wrote on Monday that he had heard from Texans who "want a senator who will stand up for their families, not stand down

The White House is quietly starting to pull the plug on its shadow Cabinet of Trump loyalists who had been dispatched to federal agencies to serve as the president’s eyes and ears. These White House-installed chaperones have often clashed with the Cabinet secretaries they were assigned to monitor, according to sources across the agencies, with the secretaries expressing frustration that the so-called “senior White House advisers” are mostly young Trump campaign aides with little experience in government. The tensions have escalated for weeks, prompting a recent meeting among Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, and other administration officials,

   

 

  


 
A Plan to Poison the Wild Hogs of Texas

HOUSTON — They say everything is bigger in Texas. And certainly, the saying holds true for the state’s feral hog population. At 2.5 million it’s the nation’s largest, and is growing exponentially as the sows birth litters of five to six piglets twice a year and those piglets can start reproducing before they are even a year old. Brought to Texas by Spanish explorers in 1542, wild pigs here cause an estimated $52 million a year in damage as the bristly backed hooligans smash through fences, decimate crops, eat baby livestock, dig up internet and water lines, ruin golf courses

Richard “Racehorse” Haynes, the celebrated Houston lawyer well known for getting Fort Worth’s Cullen Davis acquitted in multiple murder trials, died early Friday morning. The Houston Chronicle reported he died at 12:58 a.m. Friday, according to a statement from family spokesman and criminal defense lawyer Chris Tritico. Davis, at the time the richest man to stand trial for murder in the U.S., had been charged in the 1976 slayings of stepdaughter Andrea Wilborn, 12, and Stan Farr, 30, the boyfriend of his estranged wife, Priscilla. He had a total of four trials — two in the murders and two in solicitation of murder

Climate change” and “child marriage” are “interconnected” issues, said Chelsea Clinton on Monday. Participating in a left-wing discussion panel framed as a meeting for “social justice,” she was introduced as an “activist, thought leader, and change agent.” Using "climate change" as a euphemism for the narrative of anthropogenic global warming, Clinton framed the burning of fossil fuels as exacerbating other perceived social and political issues (emphasis added): “[We] carry multiple concerns in both our head and our heart. Just listening to the concerns around education and climate change, women’s health, child marriage, access to technology, all of those are of

The former First Lady was strolling around in Montalcino, Italy this weekend -- and she appeared to be the talk of the small town. You can´t blame the locals ... she kinda stood out with the pink and white. Plus ... it´s Michelle Freakin´ Obama. She´ll always turn heads.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted President Trump´s budget on Tuesday, calling the overall proposal "dead on arrival." “President Trump’s $603 billion defense budget request is inadequate to the challenges we face, illegal under current law, and part of an overall budget proposal that is dead on arrival in Congress," McCain, a frequent critic of the president, said in a statement. The Trump administration on Tuesday unveiled a budget that would shift $54 billion from nondefense to defense spending for fiscal year 2018. That´s roughly $19 billion more than former President Barack Obama´s last plan. McCain added that Trump´s budget proposal

Fox News staffers are growing increasingly dismayed as network star Sean Hannity and others continue to promote the unfounded conspiracy theory that Seth Rich, a Democratic National Committee staffer was murdered last year for talking to WikiLeaks. The Daily Beast spoke to nearly a dozen reporters, pundits, and hosts inside Fox News who all conveyed the same sentiment: Hannity is “embarrassing” the network, and the promotion of the Rich conspiracy theory is senselessly cruel to a grieving family. “ARE WE STILL AIRING THAT SH*T?!” one Fox News political reporter, who says they are furious that the conservative cable-news giant is

Following the death of former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes last week, tributes were offered in print and on air both from likely, and perhaps unlikely, sources. But in the opening paragraph of a New York Times op-ed out Monday, Monica Lewinsky said that she did not plan to have her piece serve as another Ailes obituary. “It is, I hope, instead an obituary for the culture he purveyed — a culture that affected me profoundly and personally,” Lewinsky wrote.

UPDATED: June 14, 2016: The Washington Post reports "Russian government hackers penetrated the computer network of the Democratic National Committee." On what did the paper base this claim? The Post cites "committee officials and security experts who responded to the breach." These "security experts" are with CrowdStrike, a private cyber security firm hired and paid by the DNC. While reading the following chronology, it is important to bear in mind that the FBI has never examined the DNC computer network because the DNC prohibited the FBI from doing so. Also, that the FBI, under former Director Comey, not to mention President Obama and

Somebody, please explain to Jake Tapper about Arabs and the “strong horse.” Osama bin Laden explained it pretty economically years ago, but that’s a message that is difficult for liberals living in a fantasy world to grasp. After all, Barack Obama had a Muslim father, and he’s a “person of color” (one of the most annoying expressions in the English lexicon, casting Caucasians as colorless), so there must be some kumbayah, right? Jen Psaki, to whom Tapper asked his question, is in no position to explain, as she first tries to grab credit for the arms deal Trump just announced
